    I absolutely loved FMA Brotherhood but I can't find anything to fill the void help me.

    I would prefer one with a really good story and an interesting concept but not really unreal.

    paranoia agent has a really good story, but it might be unrealish in some aspects (it has very good social commentary, but i don't really want to spoil it). its kind of surreal. its worth a check though.

    witchblade has a great story too

    Cardboard Box
    Ghost in the Shell TV series possibly.
    Code Geass,
    Darker than black (not the best story, but I still liked it)
    Ergo Proxy,
    Baccano.

    I also heard Monster was good.

    Wow, most of the stuff I posted is science fiction.

    Death Note is kind of unreal, but it has a really good story imo.

    Yes!
    Lol, not really unreal? I've never seen any that aren't absurdly fantastic, but all of my friends tell me Monster is really good.

    Hayate no Gotoku is pretty good for just plain entertainment, I'm not sure about the story, though.
    Try Toradora, maybe.

    The original FMA was better(story-wise) than brotherhood imo.
    If you like drama/romance,Kanon and Clannad AS are excellent.
    Horror genre has some good stories (Hellgirl,Ergo Proxy).

    Beg to disagree... FMA: brotherhood packed the intensity that was in the manga, and the darker mood actually makes better sense with the story being what it is.

    Witchblade needs maybe that you know the comics first. As there's nothing explained, without begining or ending [​IMG]
    Though, Madcow worked on the anime, so it's kind of an official story [​IMG]

    Saikano was good [​IMG]
    Claymore (but unfinished story ;_; )


    Sports anime :
    Do you like sports anime ?
    Major (if you want to feel like you need the next episode right after the end of the current one, it's a good choice [​IMG] )
    Hikaru no Go

    Old japan era :
    Seirei no Moribito (good story, but I felt like it was unfinished)

    Mecha & futuristic :
    Gunbuster/Diebuster (Mecha in space)(a little old maybe, but a nice concept and idea)
    Heroic Age (mecha in space)
    Eve no Jikan (near futur only, no mecha but androids. watch the movie, it's a full recap of the series)
    Freedom (Design by Katsuhiro Otomo)

    Shoujo :
    Fuujin Monogatari (nice graphical concept/idea)
    Rec (very short story, interesting idea)

    Funny or extreme lacking of common sense :
    Jungle wa Itsumo, Hare nochi Guu
    Arakawa under the bridge

    Other :
    Mushishi

    Old gen anime :
    Mysterious cities of gold (but USA had a different translation/story/music than French) (French producer will release MCoG 2 in 2011)
    Nadia (Fushigi no umi no nadia)

    Single Movie :
    Toki wo kakeru Shoujo (modern day. a girl who acquires the power to go back in time).
    Brave story (Heroic Fantasy)
    Miyori no Mori (Princess Mononoke like)


    Sorry, I made a lot of them, I don't know what genre you are searching for, so I separated them.

    I'm going to try watching Monster since that came up the most.
